Glimpses of the New Veteran addresses three premises: (1) the veteran constituency has changed with use of an all-volunteer force, Guard, Reserves, women, aging veterans, etc.; (2) veterans' disabilities and treatments for disease and injuries have changed; and, (3) while traditional veterans-oriented programs may be strained, for whatever reasons, all of us in the community, in and out of government, whether veterans, service officers, caregivers, family, lawyers, physicians, social workers, etc., can uniquely and substantively assist in resolving these shared concerns. The book's intent is not to criticize time-honored resources, and it does not try to be either a handbook or manual, but, rather, it provides increased understanding and food for thought. The authors, all experts in veteran's law and/or medicine, policymakers, judges, lawyers, physicians, soldiers ranging from generals to enlisted personnel, Reserves, National Guard, and wounded warriors, explore these changes from their own wide spectrum of experiences; and they present viable alternatives for the twenty-first century, from official benefits processes at state and national levels and employment, training opportunities, and veterans treatment courts to blue-ribbon examples of efforts from nonprofits and corporations and pro bono work from law firms, that are now operational and effective and may be increasingly viable and adaptable for the future.
Contributing authors include: Judie Armington, Lee Becker, Alice Booher, David Coker, Rhonda Cornum, Kory Cornum, Paul Galanti, William Gunnar, Carolyn Haug, Terry Howell, Marti Nell Hyland, Anthony Mainelli, Lory Manning, Lawrence Miller, James Ridgway, Ron Smith, Roy Spicer, James Terry, Irene Trowell-Harris, James Weiskopf, Richard Williams and Aragorn Thor Wold.
